Well, I pulled the trigger on a new to me boat. I saw the add on CL and it was only a few miles from the house. The new ride is a Landau, model 1470F, 14' long, 48" at the bottom and 21" sides. I've had it out once and the stability is nice. I was looking at longer boats, but the 14' is as long as I can go and still fit a car in the garage. Picked it up in late June, I've been steadily working on it weekends and some weeknights. The PO removed the rear seat and installed two pod seats, I think I'm going to like them. The rest of the boat is wide open. I'm going with a low front deck to make family friendly ride. The transom was shot and getting this one out was easy, but required cutting out several factory rivets, they will be replaced w/ SS bolts.

The front deck has been removed, along with pounds and pounds of bolts, old foam and whatever else was tucked up in there. All of the unwanted holes in the hull were patched with my best friend JB Weld and a new transom was cut.

I'm going to use the front deck as storage, worked out great on the PolarKraft plus the PO had already removed some of the aluminum there. The rear seat pods will also double as storage, the port side will hold the gas tank, starboard will be for whatever. All storage access holes have been reinforced with aluminum angle, very stout.

All of the decking has been completed, I really like the look of the low front deck. The floor deck measures 45" x 50", the low front deck measures 52" x 48", should be a nice stable fishing platform. The framing wasn't too bad, hope it's not overly done, decks are 15/32" so I wanted the supports close enough together so the deck wouldn't flex.

My goal of this build was to create a functional, not over the top, long lasting vessel. I did add lights, but I'm not using a switch panel, they're just going to be wired right to the battery. There will be one trolling motor plug up front, 6 gauge wire from the back will power that. Other than my Eagle Cuda 300 and Atwood rod holders (4), not much else is going in the Landau. Fishing out of the PolarKraft for one year I found what I like most, open floor space, so this boat will have a lot of that. I thought about a livewell, but lately just throwing the fish I want to keep into an ice chest has worked just fine, I just bring a small one with me for bream as the bass go back in the drink. I've already picked up the paint, Summit Grey from Sherwin Williams. I like the grey on my PK, just wanted it a little bit darker this time to help hide the water line and worms guts. Any concerns or comments are appreciated.

=D> It looks like you are well on your way to meeting your goal!! Good looking boat, you will like the 48" width. I think you will also like the split rear seat. I like the way you are doing your front deck, should be really stable. I also used 15/32" plywood decking on my project for weight, and have been real pleased with it. I didn't put a livewell on my current boat either, use a floating fish basket when the water is cool and a cooler when it is hot.
Looking forward to see how this turns out.

All decks, seat areas and hatches are now carpeted. It is a bear trying to flip over a 4' x 4' piece of plywood with glue on one side to place it in the proper position on a pre-cut piece of carpet :LOL2: Everything looks great. This weekend, the hull will be flipped over, a few small leaks patched with JB Weld, primed and painted. Hope to take the family out for a cruise over Labor Day Weekend.

Got the Landau flipped over on the trailer this weekend, with a little leverage and some planning, one person can move a 14' pretty easily. I sanded the boat, the PO applied a horrible spray paint job, and got it primed. I'll wait the recommended 48 hours before painting. I'm using the Shorelander trailer that I have my PK on, it was bought new in 2008 for another boat, is in perfect shape, and also has 12" tires.

Put the first coat of paint on the boat last night, looks pretty good. Snapped a quick pick with the phone on the way out the door this morning.

Second coat of paint is on the bottom and sides. Next up, flip the boat back over, sand, prime and paint the inside. I'd also like to get out the scale and weigh everything going in the boat so I have an idea of overall weight. Before I prime, I'm going to pick up one of the spray paint can adapters with the trigger, are they available at Lowes, HD, or is that more of a specialty item?
